With less than a month away from its global release, two more PokÃ©mon and their evolutions have been revealed from PokÃ©mon X and PokÃ©mon Y. This time, the PokÃ©mon come from restoring one of two fossils found in the game.
First up is Tyrunt. Restored from the Jaw Fossil, this little guy is described as over 100 million years old. He is also selfish and will throw a fit if he does not get his way. His species is Royal Heir with the ability Strong Jaw which powers up moves like Crunch. He is also a Rock/Dragon type which means his Dragon Tail move will receive a power boost.
Once he evolves, Tyrunt becomes the fierce and intimidating Tyrantrum. A noticeable change in this PokÃ©mon is that his small "collar" has expanded and he has grown a "crown" and a white beard. This gives Tyrantrum the appearance of a ruling king. His species also changes from Royal Heir to Despot PokÃ©mon. If you look closely at his name, you will see there is some wordplay on the word tantrum. Looks like he's a bratty as ever.
The other fossil PokÃ©mon you can choose to restore is Amaura who comes from the Sail Fossil. This particular PokÃ©mon is much less fierce in appearance and looks similar to a miniature Lapras with head ribbons. Estimated to be as old as Tyrunt, Amaura is a Trundra PokÃ©mon and a Rock/Ice type with the ability Refrigerate. One advantage to restoring this PokÃ©mon is its ability to learn Aurora Beam early on in the game.
After its evolution, Amaura becomes the more powerful Aurorus. While its Species, Type, and Ability do not change, Aurorus gains some interesting moves for battle. One of these moves is called Freeze-Dry, a brand new move only in PokÃ©mon X and PokÃ©mon Y. What makes Freeze-Dry is so useful its ability to leave enemies frozen for a time in battle which can tips the odds in your favor. It is also one of the only Ice type moves that are super effective against Water type PokÃ©mon.
